      Theres two pins that move out of the way when you twist it like barrings but long pins thats why theres holes on the blocks ,these pins move when you agitate the blocks

    They were locked with a ball. When you shake it, the ball rolls away towards the end of the piece it's in, allowing the pieces to unlock.

    Centrifugal force moves the pins back, which allows the two pieces to separate

      Yea, I noticed the dowl inside one piece n the hole in the other.👍

  • Marshall McDonald

    The cross pieces have rods in them that pass through each other (The little holes above the notches). The rapid twist motion dislodges them enough to take them apart.

  • LightSpirit24

    Its held together by a pin located in the cutout section. By rotating back and forth, the pin will slide deeper into its hole thereby releasing the other piece it held in place.

  • FeistmasterFlex
    FeistmasterFlex 8 months ago +3998

    There's a dowel inside of the piece that passes through the hole on each. The back and forth action slide the dowels out of the holes allowing the piece to disconnect. You can slightly see the dowel when you set one of the pieces down as it sticks out about half a cm

    UNCLE BUZZ 4 months ago +5

    It has 2 pegs that lock into the small holes above the cutout and inertia makes them move back into the recess. To put it back together, turn it back and forth the opposite direction.

    • Joel Eenkhoorn
      Joel Eenkhoorn Month ago

      @BioT lol, it is a dowel but it's put back in place by turning the puzzle verticle so the Dowel can Drop back through the holes of the sticks

    • BioT
      BioT 2 months ago +1

      Back & forth the opposite direction? Huh? It's twisted left-right-left-right quickly. How do you do that backwards? (Please don't say right-left-right-left.)

  • Cerebix

    There’s a pin in both of the wood blocks, spinning it causes the pins to have an outward force, pulling them away from each other, allowing you to pull them apart.

  • Mariah Blue
    Mariah Blue Month ago +2

    There is a moving peg that goes through the holes to "lock" them together. When you spin it back and forth, the force pushes the pin outward! My guess

      Wooden dowel goes back then it will release.

  • 1965fleetwood
    1965fleetwood 4 months ago

    This is really easy how it works, just a pin holding it in place so when you spin it back and furth you are letting the pin slide back into the wood, releasing the 2 sticks

    The parts is kept together with wooden pins. They unlock becouse of centrifugal force when you spin it. Like I said, I used about 9 hours to solve it.

    Because it's perpendicular, you can only spin it to makes the dowels retract from the centre axis.

  • Night Wolf Gaming
    Night Wolf Gaming 2 months ago

    I know this isn't how it works but this is what I was thinking in my head, so there is a magnet in each one of those 2 holes and when you shake the square containing the helicopter top, it will make the magnets move away from each other, one goes one way the other goes the other way, allowing it to come compart and remove the helicopter top

    Mechanical stuff is so fun to analyze. There's no magic there like a code or anything. Just hidden little pegs and pieces with specific shapes, sizes, holes and angles that make them follow the law of physics to fit and work together.

    It's locked with the help of a short shaft that travels in the middle of the planks through the holes in the middle, since the holes inside the shaft is longer than the shaft, when you shake the planks left and right rapidly, the shaft falls back into the holes there by unlocking the planks. Thank you.

  • Neil Harrison

    I believe the 2 pieces are locked together due to rods of some sort which are in the hole and after giving it a wiggle this releases the rod using centrifugal force which in turn realeses the blocks

  • Alan Schaller
    Alan Schaller Month ago

    I saw a dowel on one of the rectangular rods. When you rotate the rectangular rods centrifugal force moves the dowel towards the end of the rectangular rod which unlocks the rods.
    To lock the rods together put rods together in the frame, then rotate the rod with dowel in it to the vertical position and tap it so the dowel will slip into the second rectangular rod which locks the rods together... very cleaver...

    Known as the Universal Man, Da Vinci is widely considered to be the most diversely talented person to have ever lived. Among his many achievements, he painted the world famous Mona Lisa, he made important discoveries in engineering and anatomy and one of his designs, for a helicopter, looked remarkably similar to the first such machine, which was built 400 years later.

    To reassemble, you need to rotate one part carefully to avoid the pins come out (cutout facing down and that will be the upper part) and insert it in the frame, and now insert the second part (lower part) in the frame. Shake the all thing and the puzzle is locked again.

    There is a rod inside the hole at the side wall of one bar. You can see this rod at the end of video. To lock the bars together, we shake them so that a part if the rod moves into the hole in another bar. Shaking the frame again will move the rod back inside the wall and unlatches the bars apart.

      Doug R. 5 months ago

      @Béal Feirste agreed. Helices are (generally) three dimensional. Their projections onto 2 dimensions may be spirals but could be circles or more complicated wavy figures, depending on the angle of projection. However, if a flying object descends in a helical patters, one says “it spiraled downwards”…. There is no corresponding verb (that I know of) for helical motion.

      It's 2 rods inside. If you just turn the puzzle one rod will go to the bottom while the other will still lock the pieces together. This you have to spin it so that each rod go to the far side of the piece leaving the space for removing the pieces.

      Yea, a small round piece, inside the two main pieces, that locks the two pieces together by the holes, and can be moved by gravity, by tilting the whole thing

    I think it's something to do with a vacuum, as I don't see anything physical blocking the removal

    Small wood dowel that goes in the hole. Most likely you tap it into place

    The other thing with this puzzle is that it uses two pins 90° of each other. When you simply pick it up and rotate it, you may get one pin to move out of the way momentarily but as you rotate it some more to get the other pin to move will cause the first pin to slide back in, causing still to be locked together.
    Only centrifugal force causing both pins to be flung outwards will get them out of the way both at once. So theres more to this than people probably 🤔 think !
    Great video ! 👍

    I've watched enough of these to know the trick is always spinning it.
